Description

Fundamentals of electronic device fabrication

The goal of the course is to give students an overview of current fabrication techniques in the semiconductor industry, as well as the challenges and opportunities that come with device creation. It serves undergraduate and graduate students from a variety of disciplines, including chemical, electrical, mechanical, metallurgical, materials science, physics, and chemistry. The course covers an overview of integrated circuit fabrication, as well as techniques and issues that must be addressed in order to maintain Moore’s law.
